Originating in Birmingham Heavy Beat Brass Band started up in early September 2017. With the intention of bringing the New Orleans attitude and culture to the streets of Birmingham HBBB began busking on the along New Street and slowly started kicking up a storm among the local music scene. Since then the band has gone from strength to strength, With a demo EP (available for free via Soundcloud) a full length studio album, a UK tour and an expansive repertoire of all killer, no filler tunes every Heavy Beat show to date has been packed with explosive energy and vibe.

Consisting of 8 graduates from the Birmingham Conservatoire Heavy Beat are the youngest and freshest brass band in the UK. After a sell out album launch gig at the Hare & Hounds in Kings Heath we are delighted to be back in Birmingham just down the road from the birthplace of the band at the Conservatoire.
